Food, Finisher’s Ceremony

TransRockies™ Run Menu

Get ready to fuel right! Replenish and repair your muscles for this endurance run with an amazing variety of fresh food choices including plenty of lean proteins, whole grains, healthy fats, colorful fruits and vegetables.

When possible, Colorado, organic or homemade products were selected as part of the meal and foods without artificial coloring, additives or partially hydrogenated oils (aka “trans-fat”). We’re even using recycled paper plates and cups!

A gluten-free and vegan buffet is also offered nightly. Participants are welcome to go through both food lines which includes items such as a quinoa/brown rice blend, peas, steamed potatoes, raw nuts, olives, pumpkin seeds, beans, beets, diced fresh fruit, assorted raw vegetables/salad greens, Colorado diced chicken, shredded cheese, hard-boiled eggs and cottage cheese.

New products and menu revisions were a collaborative effort between the Gourmet Cowboy Catering Team and a sports dietitian. * Items may vary based on availability and freshness.

Please e-mail our caterers for special dietary requests: Sarah (Biggs) Dorn: gourmetcowboy@comcast.net and KT Bell: kt@novaguides.com

Lunch is the responsibility of the participant, however, the TransRockies™ Run route is designed to finish in areas where food is readily available throughout the afternoon.

Better for you. Better for Colorado. Look for the Colorado Proud logo at grocery stores, farmers’ markets, garden centers and restaurants. By buying locally grown, raised and processed food and agricultural products, you are receiving high quality fresh products and helping Colorado’s economy, local farmers, ranchers, greenhouses, manufacturers and processors in your area.
